Mindlikewater Album Cover by Captain Kimo

Jul 12, 2011 | Photo Art & Montage

My good friend, Joe Beaty, a local artist from Port St. Lucie, has just release a new album from his band, mindlikewater. The album is entitled “keep humming bird” and as you might have guessed my favorite hummingbird photo, which I textured, was the one he used for the cover.

I downloaded their album yesterday and love every song. I really think the band did a great job with the album, and their music definitely reflects the hummingbird image that was used for their new album cover. I am honored to have one of my pieces on an album of this caliber.

This hummingbird photo was one of my very first photo-montage where I used texture to make the photo come alive. Coincidentally my next eBook will be on texturing photos. This new eBook will show photographers how to turn an ordinary everyday shot into a work of art. You can learn more about it using the link below.
